SORT BY Relevancy
Last weeks' twin decisions by the U.S. Supreme Ct, 1 upholding Obamacare by a 6-3 majority & the other upholding Gay Marriage by a 5-4 majority have 2 be seen as a major body blow to the Republican Party. While freeing them of the obligation 2 campaign on those issues, overall they come out as the real losers & the upswing is definitely in favor of the Democratic Party in next year's presidential election.
The GOP can't pander to their base with these two vote-getting issues but instead will have to fall back on their free market/small gov't message. Even the anti-immigration stance taken by the GOP establishment, while popular w/older white GOP voters, no longer appears to be championed by the Supreme Ct in light of the rulings on Obamacare and Gay Marriage.
The GOP is basically reduced to "God" & "Guns" for presidential campaign rhetoric. Those 2 issues will generate steam among the party faithful no doubt but w/o Obamacare + Gay Marriage the engine driving the GOP vote turn-out for 2016 will be hampered markedly & any chance of the GOP winning back the White House have now been sizably diminished.
God / guns / ISIS constitute the GOP message in 2016. As far as the one other galvanizing issue 4 the GOP, abortion, the Supreme Ct. today upheld a stay of the new Texas abortion law that would shut down all but a handful of abortion clinics in TX in a 5-4 decision. While the Supreme Ct. has put in place more restrictions on abortion over the last few years, an outright repudiation of Roe v. Wade is becoming less likely.
So, the most likely GOP campaign wedge issue in 2016 will involve foreign policy - but w/more than 13 announced GOP presidential candidates running in 2016 this issue runs the risk of being watered down or overly convoluted.
In a word, the GOP is a fractured party w/a fractured message. They r in disarray + will lose big in 2016!

I became interested in writing during my freshman year in college (fall 1998). I was deeply involved in playing Ancient Anguish, a text- based fantasy multi-user dimension (MUD) game. One of the perks of completing enough quests in the game was the opportunity to become a coder for the game.
The joy at seeing my creation come to life got me interested in the creative process, so I decided to pursue a degree in creative writing from Penn State University. I joined the Penn State Schuylkill Campus Collegiate staff, interned at PA Business Central and Voices of Central Pennsylvania, and became a summer correspondent for the Pottsville Republican.
In Dec. 2002, I graduated from Penn State University with a B.A., English, with an emphasis in nonfiction writing. Following graduation, I enlisted in the Army as a print journalist. During my roughly 6 years in the Army, I covered multiple story types (sports, hard news, features), earning several awards. My work has appeared in multiple newspapers worldwide to include Military.com (readership: 6,023,048); Stars and Stripes, Washington, DC (readership: 1,000,000); and the Associated Press, New York, NY. One of my stories, Girl Waits for Second Chance to See, made the front cover of Stars and Stripes.
My work in the Army garnered me numerous awards, including the 2007 U.S. Army Forces Command runner-up Journalist of the Year (one of the top 14 journalists Army wide), 2005 Installation Management Southwest Region Journalist of the Year (one of the top seven journalists Army-wide). Other individual Army awards include editor of the 2007 top Army field publication, second place in 2007 for story series, and second place in 2006 for feature articles.
I am also a graduate of the Christian Writers Guild and have had work published in devotionals such as Soul Journey.

The ATC comminisioner appointed has at least three known pending racial discrimination lawsuits and this commissioner Troy Hebert has denied a U.S. Major with 24 years of service and a disable Black female veteran a liquor license without reason, without any application errors, without any wrong doings after 22 unannounced inspections. Hebert serves at the pleasure of the businesses in the French Quarters, yet, you have allowed the racially motivated person to continue his deception.
Less than 2% black business owners in the French Quarters
50% of young African Americans unemployed
Black Zip codes…. 70117, 70118, 70122, 70126, 70127, 70128 no help after Katrina
12 Billion was give after hurricane Rita
108 Billion was given after hurricane Katrina
Within 32 years there was ONLY 2 Black Mayors… 1st 1978 and the other was in 2010 and his now in prison.
For every $1000 Whites make in New Orleans. Blacks ONLY make $35.00
Why is the state allowing an alleged racist (recently reported to have 3 open federal discrimination lawsuits pending) to remain as the head of one of the top revenue generating offices of the state of Louisiana? It's time to call Gov Bobby Jindal and tell him to put ATC Commissioner, Troy Hebert, on the bench. Bring him in and off the field until after these legal cases are tried...

Al and Vito will be discussing the topic of the day & past week including the Ramadan Rampages in France, Kuwait and Tunisia. U.S. Embassy in Indonesia celebrates 4th of July on June 4th so as not to offend muslims during their "holy Ramadan" season. Really? the PC police come out & change our United States celebration so not to offend muslims. Yet during muslims most holiest of times they go on a rampage and kill hundreds of non-muslims around the world?
New report today, AIDS making a comeback within ISIS. Wonder if Obama will send team of physicians & CDC over to the caliphate?
Of course we will discuss last weeks Supreme Court rulings. Progressive Government furthers their cause to control Americans' lives from Cradle to Grave with their ObamadoesntCare decision. Nothing like legislating from the bench! A second landmark ruling courts decide Gay Marriage is legal in all 50 states. Nothing like government controlling all aspects of life and individual liberties in the United States of America!
